was 559.715 recently updated/amended? If so do you know when it was amended or when the changes go into effect?. Thanks for your great answer.
Never mind, the statute was amended and enacted on Oct. 2010. Thanks again for your answer
From the Florida Senate website, here is the pre-2010 version:
The 2009 Florida Statutes
559.715 Assignment of consumer debts.--This part does not prohibit the assignment, by a creditor, of the right to bill and collect a consumer debt. However, the assignee must give the debtor written notice of such assignment within 30 days after the assignment. The assignee is a real party in interest and may bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to collect a debt that has been assigned to such assignee and is in default.
History.--s. 1, ch. 89-69; ss. 6, 13, ch. 93-275.
